We received a website enquiry from a new customer who found our informative website via a local Google search: ‘Fire Extinguisher Supplier Bollington’. We called the said customer to discuss their requirements and timescales, followed by arranging an appointment to attend site to fully assess and install in the same week.
Upon arrival, our engineer assessed the under construction commercial restaurant, which measured approximately 400m2 per floor, ground and upper; they reviewed the recent Fire Risk Assessment, which was conducted by our approved competent person, this report confirmed portable fire extinguishers were required ASAP in-line with guidance document British Standards BS5306-3 & 8:2017.
After discussing the portable fire extinguisher assessment with the ‘Responsible Persons’, it was recommended two fire extinguisher points per floor consisting of 1 x 3-Litre Water (13A BSI Kitemarked UKCA) and 1 x 2KG CO2 Carbon Dioxide (34B BSI Kitemarked UKCA) extinguishers were to be installed, to provide suitable and sufficient first-aid fire-fighting cover for the identified fire risks (wood, paper & textiles and electrical) present throughout the non-kitchen areas, allowing for ‘aiding escape’ from the unit in the event of fire.
Within the commercial kitchen it was identified that F-Class (Oils & Fats) and electrical fire risks were present, from this an additional fire point was installed consisting of 1 x 6-Litre Multiclass F-Class Foam (34A 233B 75F BSI Kitemarked UKCA), 1 x 2KG CO2 Carbon Dioxide (34B BSI Kitemarked UKCA) and 1 x 1.2m x 1.2m Fire Blanket (BSI Kitemarked BS EN 1869:2019).
Upon completion, our engineer provided a ‘without-charge’ 3-year fire safety logbook & basic fire safety training booklet, enabling the responsible person to fully understand their legal obligations, and underpin their ongoing fire safety processes and procedures.Read our 5 star reviews
